Thank You Allured!

Over the weekend, Allured Business Media in Carol Stream held their first charity garage sale to benefit HSP’s Senior Citizen Project. Many of us from HSP managed to make it to the sale either on Friday or Saturday, and, let us tell you, it was quite the event. Allured had rows and rows of all manner of items such as books, children’s toys, artwork, home décor items, desks and appliances (such as TVs and vacuums.) Allured even went beyond the normal garage sale faire and had computers, furniture, and even a motorcycle for sale! On top of all of this, Allured pledged to match dollar for dollar all the money made by the sale (up to $7500!)

We want to thank Allured for all the energy and resources they put into the sale for the sake of the needy seniors served by our project. Also, we specifically wish to recognize Jan Ludwig, Allured’s President, who organized the event, and the Allured employees who volunteered their time to work at the sale. We also wish to thank everyone who donated items or who attended the event. Thanks to everyone involved, this event was a big success, and will better equip HSP to serve the very needy seniors who receive much needed groceries and others services through our project.
